My story

[p]It is estimated that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. I therefore wanted to take on a challenge to raise awareness and some cash to support the profile of mental health awareness in the UK. [/p][p]Linked to the 1 in 4 I am going to be completing 1000km in 400 days through a series of events; cycles, run and walks asking groups of friends to help me along the way. I have chosen the national charity Heads Together for the fundraising side of things, but really this is more about awareness of mental health. To raise awareness of mental health I shall be wearing a blue headband to every event (just like Heads Together promote). [/p][p]Heads together support some of the leading mental health charities and champion the message of mental health awareness throughout the UK, more info can be found here-www.headstogether.org.uk/about-heads-together/. [/p][p]There is also a Facebook page you can follow- Charlie Paradise 1000km in 400 days for Heads Together.
